Manchester United extended their lead against Celta Vigo with a all-important goal from Marouane Fellaini. Henrikh Mkhitaryan found Marcus Rashford in space, and he delivered a perfect pass to Fellaini at the far post. A simple header from close range beat keeper Sergio Alvarez, who could only get a hand on the shot. Celta Vigo controlled possession early on, needing at least one away goal to advance. Their task just became much more difficult.
After being on the pitch for nearly three minutes, Olivier Giroud secured Arsenal's over Southampton. A perfect string of passes found their way to an open Giroud who buried the free header.

Alexis Sanchez proved to everyone why he is one of the best forwards in the world. Mesut Ozil threaded a perfect pass, but Sanchez had no space to work with. After four touches, two Southampton players were on the ground and Alexis had opened up a clear cut chance and made no mistake of the finish.
Of Raul Jimenez's 21 goals in his Benfica career, 14 have come after the 70th minute, with five match-winners.
Jimenez's prowess in the clutch was on display this weekend when in the 75th minute he scored the only goal of the match against Rio Ave to give Benfica the win.
The best goals are the goals that no one sees coming. The long goals that come out of nowhere and no one can predict. All 13 of these goals, the longest goals in football history, fall into this category.
Some of these goals were scored by the goalkeepers, some of these goals were scored by the field players, and all of these goals were scored from their own half. Incredible. The longest goal of them all – Asmir Begović's world record goal – was scored from 100.5 yards out, the equivalent of kicking a ball the entire length of an American football field.
The headline of this article was a joke. Take a look at this clip of Chicharito's best goal and see if you can spot why.
Heh. Get it? Face of Manchester United? God, I am so clever.
